Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser
on Broadway — and we’re going to rally
outside the event, urging him to veto the
proposed Port Ambrose Liquid Natural
! The project threatens our
health, safety, and environment while
blocking a wind energy project proposed
for the same location.Fortunately, Cuomo has the authority to stop this dangerous proposal — and on October 14
, we’re going to call on him to protect New Yorkers by doing so!

“Made in the Bronx: Green Buildings, Green Jobs”
Saturday, November 14, 2015, @2:00-5:00 pm
Smith Auditorium, Manhattan College, 4513 Manhattan College Parkway, Bronx
Climate change – caused largely by heat-trapping greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) – threatens our economy, infrastructure, public health, food & water, and NYC’s future. The year 2015 is on track to be the warmest on record.Buildings account for close to 72% of U.S. electricity use, a significant percentage of GHGs, and contribute to high asthma rates in the Bronx. We need a rapid and just shift OFF fossil fuels and ON to a 100% renewable energy economy by 2030. Join us to learn how we can “green” our residential buildings. Our speakers will focus on the transition to renewables (solar, wind, geothermal), energy conservation, boiler conversions, and exciting initiatives in the Bronx to build a green, local workforce, and green housing for all.
Moderator: Dr. Yelda Hangun-Balkir, Director, Manhattan College Center for Urban Resilience and Environmental Sustainability (CURES)
Keynote Speaker: Ray Figueroa, President, NYC Community Garden Coalition
Lisa DiCaprio: Professor of Social Sciences, NYU
Chris Neidl: Director, Here Comes Solar, Solar One
John Reilly, Executive Director, Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation
